I’m always thinking about topics to blog about, and usually I just share what I am doing in life. If I am making a certain recipe, I share it, if we are doing holiday crafts, I let you know which ones, etc.
I’ve been trying to think of a way to motivate myself to take care of things that I have been putting off, and this brilliant:) thought popped in my mind “I should do a weekly post on anti-procrastination, so I will be forced to do something each week to share with my readers!”
Not only will I be held accountable to deal my tendency to procrastinate, but here is the best part–ready? WE CAN DO IT TOGETHER! Hence, my very first weekly”link party!” I am so excited!
As most bloggers know, a link party is where other bloggers can link up posts on a similar subject, all in the same place (in this case, my blog since I will be the host). Then we can “visit” each others blogs, and get inspiration and MOTIVATION! Not a blogger? No worries, you can join in by sharing about your anti-procrastination of the week in the comments section, or you could just click through list of links, to read up on what other people have done, and hopefully become inspired!
You may be one who does not struggle with procrastination, (Flylady & I call you people BO’s-“born organizers.” I also call you “lucky dawgs” and “people I’m really jealous of”) if you fall in this category, I WANT TO LEARN FROM YOU! It would be great if you could leave a blog post or comment with a tip or two of what DOES works for you!
If you are one who struggles with procrastination, you are not alone! Please come back each week on tuesdays and link up! Tell us your thoughts, show us pictures of what you’ve accomplished or want to accomplish…it could even be a post showing us what you have been putting off, so that we can give each other tips or encouragement. It could be big or small, from making a dr’s appt to tackling that overflowing storage room.
I think this is a GREAT opportunity for me to get real with you! I’ve joked with my sister that the pics of my cobwebs and dust don’t quite make it onto the blog. We both agreed a “let’s get real” post was in order. Now with Anti-procrastination Tuesdays, you will see and hear about my junk and hopefully that will motivate me to GET BUSY!
So Let’s Recap:
–Anti-Procrastination Link Party @ New Nostalgia on Tuesdays, starting March 9th.
-If you are not a blogger, join in by commenting! Share with us what you have accomplished or would like to accomplish, or just enjoy visiting the different blogs that link up.
-If you are a blogger, share any post you have written about procrastination. It could be sharing about something you’ve accomplished, sharing tips on how to get motivated, or sharing different goals you would like to eventually get to. Any post on something that you have accomplished, past or present, works! I want to see those before and after pics– I’ll show you my junky gunk if you show me yours!
-Can be big or small…finishing a report, taking a load of stuff to goodwill, working on a project with a child, signing yourself up for jujitsu (why not?), cleaning the car, cleaning the shower head (on my list), etc..
Here is a button if you would like to pass the word along (ohh, that button. You don’t want to know how long it took me to make that ^%#%$@! button! It is not a perfect button, but it is two o’clock in the morning right now and I won the battle, er, sort of, and I’m feeling quite proud). The button will also stay in my sidebar for future need.
Bloggers, if you have continued to read this far, if this is something that excites you, or if you know others whom it may excite, I would be honored if you would help get the word out. Feel free to grab and share my button, or even just give the post a little “tweet” by hitting the retweet button. I am still pretty new at this blogging thing, so I for sure need my blogging community to spread the news.
Readers, I’m humbly asking you for help, too! If you know anyone who you think would get into something like this, feel free to share this post via facebook, twitter or email.
It may take awhile to get people to participate, but that is ok! I am pumped! You don’t know how badly I need some motivation to get stuff done! Spring is a comin’ and I got stuff to do!!
So what do you think? Leave a comment and let me know..

hey this sounds like a great idea ~ and I’ll give it a shot! I’ll put a reminder in my phone for every Tuesday (otherwise I’ll *forget….one of my major problems) I’m not a very good blogger, my blog is dying, because I procrastinate doing it!!!!!!
I need help too Amy, so I hope this will help. I’m a big fan of flylady…I just fell off the fly wagon a few years ago, and haven’t been able to get back on. 😛

This sounds like it will be a great party! Fun idea 🙂
JamieMarch 5, 2010 at 3:53 pm
So today is the 5th. I’ll jot somethings down. You have quite the list. I have some writing goals I need to be moving lots faster on ~ before my deadlines are upon me. And goals with my children. Thanks for the fun idea. And don’t give up on the library book. I found a long lost one yesterday.
The BookwormMarch 4, 2010 at 10:31 pm
How fun! I would like to do this next week as well. Hopefully I will remember. I am a day ahead of you though so I might jump the gun on & come back to post my link. 🙂
LynnMarch 4, 2010 at 7:01 pm
I would love to join! The next few months (read: more like year!) is going to be spent cleaning out, reorganizing, etc to try and get our house ready to be put up for sale. I have high expectations so I hope I can accomplish it all!
AmyMarch 4, 2010 at 7:30 pm
So, so glad you are all joining me.
I am eager to share some of your posts in the following weeks, so take pictures of what you get accomplished (even if it is just a simple shelf cleaned off, before and after pics are fun and inspiring!)
Thanks for your support and excitement!
BethanyMarch 3, 2010 at 10:14 pm
I’ll be there too, I’m working on my list 🙂
Our LivesMarch 1, 2010 at 7:21 pm
Great idea Amy! I am thinking of joining in. We do have a few projects to start/finish. We are not big procrastinators it is just that life is crazily busy right now and the only two things I want to be sure that I serve my family well are clean laundry and nutritious food. Everything else is on “first come first serve” bases. LOL!
Nicole FelicianoMarch 2, 2010 at 1:13 am
I’ll be there! Love the idea.
KristenMarch 1, 2010 at 5:06 pm
I like the idea! Lately, I have been subconsciously procrastinating on several tasks/projects, so any help on realizing & remembering those projects would be great!
AmyMarch 1, 2010 at 7:57 pm
yes, spring approaching is great motivation. I would love to actually do a good job with spring cleaning this year, maybe now I will!
So glad you have all considered joining, I am honored.
@our lives-great perspective on the whole laundry/nutritious food thing. Both are very important! You’ve motivated me to go throw in a load and thaw some chicken! See how antiprocrastination and community works?:) Love it.

I’ll be there on Tuesdays Amy and I put your button on my side bard. This is a great idea! It feels so good to mark a task off your list. Great time to begin this series as Spring Cleaning approaches. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
